The aim of the workshop
is to discuss recent advances in our understanding of political behavior given by new behavioral models. We welcome theoretical and empirical (experimental and field data). We will give preference to the following themes and topics:
- Beliefs and misbeliefs: explaining the role of agents’ beliefs in their political choices and the effects of belief formation and possible systematic misbeliefs.
- Social preferences: discussing how agents’ social preferences can help explain patterns of political engagement.
- Sophistication: bringing insights from behavioral game theory models on agents limited sophistication into strategic games in politics (voting, coalition).
